. this is the first test of the second obama administration. >> andrea: right. a lot of people are looking at the timing and they are speculating. there is no proof of this. but they are speculating why after the enext? was there some kind of deal cut? i read on a blog by netanyahu. it will let you have peace and then i'll fight back after the election. i'll tell you, this has been going on for a long time. israel faced five wars to protect itself. every time it's won. i am not sure you can't look at this without looking at president obama's statement. may 19, 2011, he said the starting point for may negotiation should be '67 borders. this is not something that israel wants at all. it was a willing sign to palestinians and the arab world, listen, go get them. i would say it predates '67 and goes to 1948. that is when israel got independence. i agree with israel, they should do everything they can to protect themselves. believe me, they don't want this war. they don't want violence. >> dana: let's get greg in here about the media. if i could play a sound bite from ralph peters who was on ea
.s. consulate in libya was a terrorist strike, even though that wasn't how the obama administration initially described it publicly. representative peter king of new york said petraeus had briefed the house intelligence committee on september 14, and he does not recall petraeus being so positive at the time that it was a terrorist attack. he thought all along that he made it clear there was terrorist involvement, king said. that was not my recollection. so senator feinstien, did petraeus contradict himself or has he contradicted the white house's version of events? >> we have a transcript of that meeting on that day. and petraeus very clearly said that it was a terrorist attack. and outlined who he thought might be involved in it. so any -- >> this is right after the attack? >> that's the day after the attack. i think there's no question about it. what has concerned me about this is really the politicization of a public statement that was put out by the entire intelligence committee, which susan rice on the 16th, who was asked to go before the people and use that statement, did. i have read e
the obama administration says we can hand out the subsidies regard misof the law. the lawyers say, no. >>stuart: maybe other states will say, we don't went to spend owe money, either, you can do it, federal government. that would be the unravelling. >>guest: and much litigation. men may lose their jobs but for lawyers it is full employment program for them. >>stuart: they are still writing the regulations in a fierce attempt to get them written. is that raising the cost of obamacare? >>guest: take a look at the obama administration projections, the health contains administration, rules telling doctors and patients what to do, that will cost not $28 billion which is what they cost when he came to office but $71 billion. can you imagine, $71 billion a year spent on bureaucracy. it should be spent on health plans for people. >>stuart: is that the bill you have to pass before you find out what is in it. >>guest: this is the turkey for thanksgiving. >>stuart: always a pleasure. forget the stuffing. people thinking, shopping, days away from black friday? and bargain hunters, already lining

-- is not a biographer to come on, colby. >> is the obama administration guilty of a cover-up in the benghazi attack? >> i think she knew better, and if she did no better, she should not be the voice of america. . >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous. >> they're talking about our u.n. ambassador, who could be the president's nominee to be secretary of state. this is about her appearance on talk shows on september 16 following the september 11 attacks in benghazi. charles krauthammer, our friend here, who is off this week -- i think he is in miami traveling -- has been hammering away at this for weeks but he said that it was a funny cover story in the run-up to the election. what do we know about this? .> we don't know yet maybe the intelligence committees have some notion, but we really don't know yet. they are still conducting the investigation within the state department. it seems like there were 85 things going on at once. i am not
much. >>> lawmakers are turning the heat on the obama administration about what officials knew and when regarding the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans, including ambassador chris stevens. on sunday, lawmakers called on u.n. ambassador susan rice to testify before congress on her remarks after the attack. at issue are rice's talking points and why a final draft was changed to down play the role of terrorists, a fact supported by friday's closed door testimony of former cia director david petraeus. republicans portrayed rice as a pawn of the president's election year agenda. >> the story she told reinforced the political narrative helpful to the president. i don't know what she knew, but i know the story she told was misleading. >> we are going to find out who made changes in the original statement. until we do, i really think it's unwarranted to make accusations. >> the administration denies any claims of white house interference. >>> meanwhile, paula broadwell, the north carolina woman at the center of the scandal that led to pet
. another question is asean's relationship with the u.s. the obama administration has a policy of working to counter the rise of china. how asean nations take part in that policy shift may have an impact. cambodia isn't the only country to feel the impact of china's spreading influence. economic, political, and military. if asean wants to cooperate with its neighbor on the equal footing, member states need to remain united and work with the united states. >> thank you very much, indeed, for that. speaking there to nhk world's phin chanda. u.s. president barack obama arrived here in cambodia on monday evening to attend the two-day east asia summit. on tuesday, he'll hold bilateral meetings with leaders including the prime minister of japan and the chinese premier as well. now, how will the united states respond to the growing presence of china here in southeast asia? well, we'll keep you updated as these delicate discussions continue. i'm patchari raksawong reporting from phnom penh. >>> patchari, thanks. barack obama made history before he arrived in cambodia. he became the first sitting
on the u.s. mission in benghazi and the obama administration's response. well, now that the senate and house intelligence members have heard from former cia director david petraeus, albeit behind closed doors, we know this indisputable fact. the cia knew the attack was planned and launched by terrorists affiliated with al qaeda. that's according to petraeus' testimony on friday. but two months after the attack, so many questions still remain. the answers to which have a lot of implications to u.s. security. which is why we want to bring in congressman adam schiff who serves on the house intelligence committee. congressman schiff, thank you for joining us. >> it's a pleasure. >> you were there for petraeus' testimony. what did we learn from that hearing? what did you learn from that hearing? >> well, we learned a few things. his testimony and the testimony of the prior day of the acting director set out a minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour chronology of what happened at our diplomatic post. we also learned from general petraeus that in the putting together of these talking points, there
think the big issue we are going to face of the next four years of the obama administration, and you are seeing this play out to some degree even this weekend as you watch what is unfolding in gaza, as you see the continuing argument over benghazi, as you see the continuing debate about the degree to which the united states needs to intervene more fully in syria, if you see a big argument about whether or not the united states needs to be centrally involved in issues in which its interests may not be completely vital, and that is a big change for the world. that may be the normal. >> okay. i realize i forgot something. halifax is nothing if not cutting edge, and so you are all encouraged to add tweet or have your aides tweet whatever insights you may find. halifax 2012. and we are going to have a force multiplier in the social media realm of the great insights that are here. so you should be the first one who has actually tweeted. >> seen from europe, the new normal that i can see does not look so dramatically different from the old normal. it has become popular in europe to speak of
about transparency in the obama administration as reports surface that epa administrator lisa jackson is one of several officials under congressional investigation for allegedly using a private e-mail and an alias, and the motivation is allegedly so that she could skirt the rules and hide controversial correspondence from the public, the press and even internal epa inspectors. and she's not the only one being implicated. joining me now with more, brad blakeman and marjorie clifton, former consultant to the obama campaign and principal at clifton consulting. okay, so this house committee has launched an investigation into whether ms. jackson is trying to get around public disclosure laws. because if you talk about it for the most part as a government employee, we get to see it, you know? we get to file a freedom of information request, and you have to give it over to us. that's why if you're thinking about e-mailing president obama anytime soon, know that it's all going to be a matter of public record and retrievable for the ages. [laughter] so ms. jackson, according to this house comm
like we saw in the bush administration, and republicans have criticized obama for a delay in issuing federal permits for drilling. >> john: uh-huh. >> but remember in april of 2010, we had the deep water horizon incident, right? where because of mismanagement and gross negligence on the part of a foreign oil industry -- >> john: and let's give haliburton credit too. >> absolutely. and you have trans-ocean who used to be a u.s. corporation, and then they left to avoid paying taxes. you have three companies who as i wrote last year appear to hate america. because haliburton moved its incorporation to the middle east as well. but bottom line is the delays in permits wasn't because of a crazy environmentalist in the obama administration it was because a private corporation could not handle its own business affairs. >> john: right. and this was discussed in the third presidential debate. >> right. and the president didn't make a forceful enough case to say listen we had the largest environmental and industrial disaster in american history that was caused by gross ne

are accusing the obama administration of a cover-up. four americans died in the attack. lawmakers want to know who was behind the so-called talking points used by the administration to explain what happened and why the final draft left out cia conclusions that al qaeda was involved. >> what is most disturbing, in my estimation, is the discrepancy about those talking points and the reality that existed on the ground and why the administration wasn't able to get the information in a more accurate picture of what transpired and delivered to the american people with confidence. >> lawmakers say former cia director david petraeus testified that the al qaeda reference was removed from the talking points though he wasn't sure why or by whom. the white house said the only change it made to the talking points was a factual edit. >>> the woman whose extramarital affair with petraeus cost him his job is telling friends she is devastated by the fallout. paula broadwell and her family arrived at their north carolina home yesterday. a friend says she regrets the damage she's done to her family and everyone

, are the partisans that never voted for barack obama to begin with. my own perspective for what it's worth is i find the conspiracy theories to be illogical. i keep asking to what end would the administration or someone within the administration want to manipulate the narrative? what would be the political upside in keeping this under wraps from the american people? tamron, i don't see it. why would someone be motivated to keep from september 11th through election day this quote-unquote secret? it would not bode so poorly for the president if, in fact, it was terror as compared to a spontaneous reaction. remember, the original september 11, i think, was significantly responsible for the re-election of george w. bush. so that's where it breaks down in my mind. >> that's interesting. i want to read something from "the washington post," michael. it says if some or all of these top national security figures ask/or they are deputies were vofld it's not accurate to say they acted alone but never believable on something this significant the white house would not have been in the center of the action. i gue
i just made you that. we like your -- your take on this. the obama administration should model itself after the roosevelt administration during the great depression of world war ii. the head of goldman sachs -- >> not teddy roosevelt. you said the roosevelt. there were two of them. >> stephanie: could i get through this, please. jim knows. he's the official historian. the goldman sachs chief executive said in an opinion piece in the 1930s, there was extreme bitterness between the business community and the roosevelt administration. he wrote corporate executives deplore franklin roosevelt's policies. he said he welcomed their hatred. the two sides worked together spurring a colossal increase that lifted the u.s. out of the great depression. he sees a similar opportunity now once the obama administration and the corporate community compromise so as not to derail the recovery. there is more than a trillion dollars of cash sitting on the balance sheets of companies with certainty about tax rates companies wi

administration. signed on to obama care. what happened with two of the biggest corporations in the country. too broad of a stroke. we're against regulations when, in fact, guys like me got elected because small business own eers would take me into the office and say look at the osha forms. look at all these other forms i have. and so you sit there and you paint a broad brush and you're giving breaks to the big banks on wall street to get corporate welfare and -- >> that's always the tension. the tension is individual people understand how awful it can be to be yoekd to regulations of no help to a business that grosses a million dollars a year and has five employees whereas those regulations are necessary to manage the conduct of a company with 100,000 employees that actually, you know, dumps polluted water. but they're laid out across american business and they don't have an equal impact. they impact those who can least afford to handle them and that's why regulation is a problem. it's less of a problem for big business just as economic down falls and downturns are less of a problem for the wea
's in washington. jill, exactly what is the obama administration doing right now? >> reporter: well, they're on the phone, wolf. the president is in asia. he is making telephone calls and practically every senior administration person is doing the same thing. president obama calling israel, prime minister netanyahu, and egypt three times to president morsi. and president clinton calling the egyptians three times. i looked at the list, egypt, turkey, qatar, the french, ban ki-moon. and the whole entire is to press any country with any influence on either side but especially with the palestinians with gaza to put the pressure on them to stop the fighting. >> egypt is clearly a key player. they have influence with hamas. what's the u.s. doing in its talks with the egyptian government? >> reporter: again, they're putting as much pressure on them as they can. and there is some pressure because after all, the united states gives egypt about $450 million every year. so here's one expert that we talked to. this is how he explained how the egyptians can use their influence. >> egypt is the key to
. in this state they ignored this attack by the obama administration on religious liberties, which obamacare and -- almost 80% of the catholics in this state voted for liberal democrats, abortion. guy think it was a big problem by the church not speaking out. they seem to be so afraid of lawyers and being sued that they were calworks -- were cowards, especially from the pulpits. they totally neglected it. i don't blame the republicans. i blame the catholic church. host: we are asking republicans only this morning to discuss the future of their party, basically because of all the voices that continued on the weekend, republican voices, leaders of the party talking about what mitt romney has said about why he lost and how to afford. rick santorum, a former pennsylvania senator, writes -- today."n "usa as for another republican voice, marco rubio. this is a store in "politico" this morning. -- a story. there's a little of what the senator had to say.

months ago saying after george mitchell, the obama administration's special envoy for israeli/palestinian peace negotiations, after he ended his tour without any success at all. that's been more than a year ago. maybe a year and a half or so ago. i said they need -- really, they need someone who's got clout with the israelis. who's got clout with the palestinians in the arab world. i thought bill clinton, especially with his wife leaving as secretary of state, maybe that would be a good assignment for him. he's taken on other assignments like haiti relief, for example, the tsunami. i know he got -- the final months of his presidency to a deal between the israelis and the palestinians. i think mccain may be on to something. i don't know if bill clinton would want to do it. i've asked him that question in an interview i did with him a few months back. he didn't say no. he didn't say yes. but i think they need someone of that caliber to -- assuming that they achieve a cease-fire and that there's no great guarantee that they will, let's say they do, they need to follow up quickly
. the obama administration had a special envoy, the foremaner senator george mitchell, but he gave up his efforts about a year and a half or so ago, and there's been no u.s. serious -- no u.s. mediation since then, but i think with a new secretary of state and new administration, the president just re-elected there will be an intensified u.s. effort underway fairly soon. let's see if there's a cease-fire first. >> yeah, wolf, we had a chance to talk to george mitchell last week about some of his efforts in that area. what do you think? does tony blair think this new egyptian president of the muslim brotherhood, mohammed morsi will be somebody who really wants to create peace there, because we know he has a very different relationship with hamas than the former egyptian president. >> right. he is much more different than former president hosnni mubarak. he has a lot at stake right now, and he knows it, president mor of egypt. he is trying to improve his country, and he knows if egypt, for example, were to sever its peace treaty, that was seriously rupture the entire egyptian relationship w
